At first glance, Karamba seems a little gimmicky. The website is brightly coloured and seems to be lacking the sophistication you find on bigger online gaming sites. However, once you get past this initial look of the website it’s actually got quite a good layout. It’s easy to navigate and once you have a look through the markets available, which there are a lot, the lacking sophistication doesn’t remain a problem.

Karamba are offering 2 other promotions for both Casino and Sports markets for their existing customers.

1) CHRISTMAS MARATHON : This is a Christmas focused promotion and comes with some fairly hefty prizes. Entry requires tickets to ‘race’. These tickets are won through each €20 bet on slot games. 1 x €20 bet = 1 x ticket for draw. Maximum tickets per customer is 50 per day. The promotion runs from the 3rd – 24th December 2018. Prizes include iPhones, free spins and cash prizes. The promotion is separated into three categories:

The big winners are the Weekly Sleigh Race, with 3 iPhones up for grabs. And the Reindeer Chase Raffle with big cash prizes available: 1st Place = €2500 / 2nd Place = €1500 / 3rd Place = €500. All other participants will win a share of 25,000 spins. The minimum win per player is 20 spins so well worth having a look at the terms and conditions for this one.

Karamba Sports Markets
The Karamba sportsbook leaves behind the gimmicky front page and is classic looking, sophisticated and has a good selection of sports, over 30 to choose from. All the popular sports are available on the site as well as some niche sports as well, such as Futsal, Bandy and Beach Soccer. They also boost a ‘Specials’ tab which allows betting on such things like The Academy Awards, International Politics and TV Shows.
The main page of the sportsbook has all the highlights, all the major events nationally and internationally. The odds are easy to find on the page and each sport is divided into countries and then leagues, making getting around the sportsbook quick and easy.
Karamba also have a great live betting market, like the rest of the sportsbook the navigation of this is a breeze. You can view the live betting market several different ways including Overview, Event View and In-Play schedule so it’s really user preference for this.
E-sports at Karamba
For eSports fans, Karamba is a little behind against some of the bigger eSports providers. The tab gets lost in drop down sports list, as there isn’t a clear tab for eSports on the website. The games aren’t all that comprehensive, they seem to have the standard Dota 2 leagues, Counterstrike and Rainbow Six games. There are few other choices but in terms of representation Karamba have a long way to go before they come out as a front runner in eSports. In saying that the odds are great and they do have a good selection of leagues within the regions they offer.
Play eSports Now
Virtual sports fans can find the virtual page lost in the Casino section of the website. Karamba only offer three games. Rush Cars GO!, Rush Speedway GO! And Rush cycling GO! Like the eSports it’s not easy to find. If Virtual sports are your thing, Karamba isn’t going to scratch your itch.
Along with Karamba’s sportsbook, Karamba’s Casino is where the website really shines. There is a multitude of games to choose from. They have all the popular slot games as well some real hidden gems. They have over 200 slot games to choose from, not to mention the mass amounts of scratch-cards that they have available as well. There is also video poker, blackjack, keno and roulette.
Karamba also offer Live Casino. Games available are Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat, Salon Prive & Money Wheel. There are multiple languages available and betting budgets to meet most punters. The Live Casino is easy to find on the website – at the top along with the other market choices. It’s easy to navigate and looks clean and professional.
All of their casino games are on full instant play, which means you don’t have to install anything which is a massive bonus for players on the go or with limited time. There is also a full demo mode, the entire casino can be tried without an account or deposit. Giving customers a chance to try before they buy so to speak.
Karamba Sportsbook Mobile App
Karamba’s mobile site is vibrant and has most of the features that you get on the full website. It’s equally as easy to navigate through as the website is, and all of the promotions and welcome bonuses are also available through the mobile site.
Karamba is available as a Mobile App and again has all of the features of the full site in app form. You can claim all of the promotional bonuses if you sign up as a first time customer through the app.
Licensing and regulation
Karamba is owned by Aspire Global, a major player in the online casino market. The company is based in Malta and has a Maltese gaming license. It is also licenced and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission.
The Support team at Karamba is available 7 days a week, 8am – 1am (CET). The easiest and quickest way to connect with one of the support agents is to contact them through the Live Chat function. Alternatively, you can email them at [email protected]
Their customer support works on the framework of C.A.R.E. – Customers Are Really Everything which has a nice a ring to it. There’s an FAQ tab within the Support section, which covers areas like changing passwords, requesting withdrawals, and creating your own deposit limits. It’s easy to navigate and find any issues that you may have, also worth checking out is the withdrawal process.
Karamba has a number of deposit and withdrawal options available to punters. Please see below table: There are some currency restrictions on deposits and withdrawals, so I would definitely have a look at the payment tab on the website.
|METHOD||DEPOSIT||WITHDRAWAL (BUSINESS DAYS)|
|VISA / MASTERCARD||INSTANT||6-8|
|BANCONTACT MISTER CASH||INSTANT||N/A|
|WIRE TRANSFER||Up to 6 days||6-8|
|FAST BANK TRANSFER||INSTANT||N/A|
Karamba Business Information
Karamaba was started in 2005 and is owned by Aspire Global which boast 150+ employees, 12 nationalities, 50+ igaming brands and 6 licenses. Aspire Global was also founded in 2005. Tsachi Maimon is the CEO of Aspire Global.
Once you get past the gimmicky stuff (the blue parrot that waves a phone at you every page switch), Karamba is actually a great site. It offers good odds, a varied selection of markets both in sports and casino. The stat links are in depth and offer a wide range of information regarding players and teams. It has leagues available that most other gaming sites just don’t have.
There are other sportsbooks that offer more sports, more casino games and have better features. But Karamba is competitive with the big guys. It offers a clean and concise website and considering they started in 2005 I can’t imagine it will take long before they start to become a household name in the world of online gambling sites.
One thing I will mention is their complaints, they all circle around the documents required to withdraw from your account. They ask for notarised ID and are super strict on this. It’s well worth reading through the withdrawal T&C’s before signing up – so that you save some time if you win big or small.
